New Vessel for the New Zealand Service.
The owners of the new steamer Arawa (the Shaw, Savill, and Albion Company) yesterday entertained a party of between 50 and 60 gentlemen connected with the New Zealand shipping trade at lunch on board that vessel. Mr Ritchie, M.P., presided and after the usual loyal toasts proposed :Prosperity to the Colony of New Zealand." Sir Francis Dillon Bell, K.C.M.G., Agent-General for the Colony, responded to the toast and at the conclusion of his speech proposed  "The health of the Shaw, Savill, and Albion Company." "Good fortune to the steamer Arawa" was then proposed by Mr E. Montagu Nelson, of Nelson Brothers (Limited), of London and Hawkes Bay, and responded to by the commander, Captain Stewart. 

The dimensions are 420ft by 46 ft by 32ft., and gross tonnage about 5,000. Her hull is of steel and is constructed under special survey for the highest class at Lloyd's. The vessel will be lighted throughout by the electric light. Her guaranteed speed is 12 knots, which is secured by tandem-triple expansion four-cylinder engines with a working pressure of 160 lb. on the square inch. The Arawa is in all respects elegantly fitted and contains every accommodation for the comfort of her passengers. She leaves Gravesend for New Zealand to-morrow.
